Curling up with a good book.

Katy fell asleep during one of our walks so we kept walking until you woke up. We go exercise and you got a nap- win-win!

Today you are 48 weeks old, Katy! You are officially 11 months old. How did I end up with an 11 month old, already?! Time really does fly by and I can't imagine life any other way!

We'll call this week the week of hungry, hungry Katy! We couldn't seem to feed you fast enough or fill your tummy up enough to keep you satiated. You must be going through a growth spurt- that's the only explanation I can come up with for the sheer quantity of food that you consumed this week! Several times this week, I ended up feeding you my dinner or lunch and then going to find something else to eat myself as you had completely consumed my meal. I have no complaints- I love my good eater!

You cut another tooth, Katy! This one is on the top, on the left side. With your new found tooth, you've discovered how to bite- you even bit me- ouch!!

You continue to explore your world through play. One game you like to play with Daddy is "Where's Kermit?" You have this little Kermit figurine that Daddy likes to put in his shirt pocket. Then, you like to go and find the figurine. You get a big old grin on your face when you find Kermit!

While your vocabulary is still limited to a handful of words, you do love to exert your voice and "talk" to whomever and whatever will listen. You are quite chatty- I just wish we understood what you were saying!

You are steadier on your feet, Katy. Now, when we pick you up and place you somewhere, you no longer sit, you can land on your feet. Usually, you prefer to be standing to sitting. However, you are still not confident enough to walk everywhere- crawling is still much faster.

Speaking of Kermit, the Cabarrus County Library has a play area in the children's area where they have a variety of stuffed animals. They have Tigger, a bear, a dog and a Kermit doll. Guess which stuffed animal you made a beeline for?! Hmm... must be genetic!
Speaking of genetic, I believe that you are a purse girl, just like your Mommy! I have this apple purse that you like to crawl around and carry with you. When we try to take it from you, you give it a death grip and do not let go! Hmm... must be genetic!
Daddy and I both got the 24 hour stomach bug, last week, at the same time. Let me tell you, it is NOT fun to be sick AND take care of a baby through the night. Somehow we managed, though and now we are *hopefully* all better.

We had lunch with Katherine Freeman on Wednesday and will be having lunch with some friends from Shoe Show on Thursday. It is nice to catch up with friends.
